thing either for the region or the flowering of democracy in that region or really for the united states. so i think it's arguable that the president doesn't need to as jonathan put it baby sit these leaders all the time. these sort of meetings that they're having now in a lot of ways are about the optics and i don't think that it was necessary for the president to pander to the jewish american vote meeting with netanyahu, because he's in a good place with that community. i don't think there were many imperatives for the president to sort of put on a show of taking care of this leader or that leader. he's also made it a point of his foreign policy to give america enough distance from some of the gulf states if a revolution takes place there we have the freedom to take the side of the opposition. >> also right, nobody is voting on this issue. this is inside baseball. do you think someone is at home saying he didn't meet with these leaders so i'm not going to vote for him. >> i'm thinking this more in terms of serving america's interests and think there's something to be said not rock the
. this is highest judicial office in the united states, farce enforcement. you have the head of the criminal division who is let off the hook in this to the attorney general still going to be in office who is responsible. someone has to be responsible and accountable. i think that is all we're asking for. when a u.s. agent is killed and this kind of money, waetd taxpayer money takes place. >> gregg: the president says his predecessor is responsible. in fact on thursday. president obama told the uni vision audience, i'm sure you saw this -- i'll quote him here. fast and furious was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. congressman, that is utterly untrue, is it not? >> i think that is shameful for the president to say that. yes, there was a fast and furious program before but it was properly operated. you didn't have people killed or weapons gone astray like this. >> gregg: and it stopped in 2007 two years before fast and furious begin. >> and it was a successful program. i have once chaired the criminal drug policy subcommittee in congress and we have done these
. there is the united states of america. there is not a black america and a white america and latino america and an asian america, but there is the united states of america. >> from the first time he took to the kconvention speech as th keynoter in 2004, there has been no doubt that barack obama can step into the spotlight and dazzle. four years later in denver, the optics match the excitement for the presidential campaign with greek columns surrounding him in front of a crowd of more than 75,000, and the democratic nominee delivered an electric speech. >> out of work, tough luck, you are on your own. no health care? the market will fix it. you're on your own. born into poverty? pull yourself up by your own boot straps, because even if you don't have boot, you are on your own. well, it is time for them to own their failure. it is time for us to change america, and that's why i'm running for president of the united states. >> this week in tampa, the republicans argue that barack obama is a great talker who doesn't deliver. it frames a dilemma for the third speech at a democratic national conv
're the first lady of the united states, you have a bevy of dresses designed for you, and that is no different for ann romney, but that plays into the narrative, so that's why you see the focus on it. it's a down time in the economy, and it is an attempt, again, to suggest that the romneys are out of touch with middle class americans, which that will be up to the american people to decide, but i think that story plays into that narrative. >> i want to button this up with something else we see so prevalently in this day and age is digital media. the number of tweets that were rolling in per minute when it came to michelle obama. 28,000 tweets per minute while she was speaking. she's not even the candidate. look how it compared to the left. mitt romney's measurement was only 14,000 tweets per minute. but let's finish it this way by saying, as you said, she's not running. she may have an effect but she's not running. important to note that. >> and she's also the first lady of the united states, and she's been in a very prominent role for five years now, so let's -- you know, i think balance it by
of the united states, and she's been in a very prominent role for five years now, so let's -- you know, i think balance it by the reality that she's not a world leader yet. >> hoover, you're great. thank you. >> thanks. have fun down there. >> all right, so cnn's prime time coverage of the national convention will kick off tonight with wolf blitzer and anderson cooper and during the 10:00 hour, bill clinton is going to address the delegates and a lot of people have been waiting on this speech. at midnight, piers morgan is going to wrap up the first night of the democratic national convention and it will be terrific from top to bottom. but i had already gone through menopause. these symptoms may be nothing... but they could be early warning signs of a gynecologic cancer, such as cervical, ovarian, or uterine cancer. feeling bloated for no reason. that's what i remember. seeing my doctor probably saved my life. warning signs are not the same for everyone. if you think something's wrong... see your doctor. ask about gynecologic cancer. and get the inside knowledge. exclusive to the military, and c
viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> didn't take president obama long to get back on the campaign trail. hoafeavi the fired up convention cwd in charlotte, he began a campaign swing in new but president obams bringing some extr baggage with him, ew job numbers that show the labor marke swing down sharply. thec adding just 96,0 jobs in augu. down from revised 4000 in from 8.3% to 8., but that's because ndreds of thousands of americans stopped looki for work. re's cnn's white house correspondent dan lothia >>rst lady an thebidens, president obama tried to build a momentum from the democratic national onvention. at his first stop here in portsmouth, the president made his pitch to the middle class. but also confronted the reality of a still struggling economy. even before he began drawing a contrast between his policies and the ideas of his republican opponents, president obama admitted there was no better person to make his case than former president bill clinton. >> somebody e-mailed me after his speech and said you
, but bring those resources home and invest here in the united states and that is not a message mitt romney can deliver, so therefore what, he just kind of skirted the issue and tries to talk tough on china. >> he is quite remarkable. joy, can i ask, are the next 60 days going to be utterly frenzied as the candidates travel seeking voters where ever they can find them? >> one thing you're going to want to do in a swing state like florida, turn the channel quickly when they come on. they're really inundated people and i think the dvr is going to become the most valuable tool. they're going to inundate people with so many ads. we are really going to know how this thing is shaking out baseded on where these guys go. if you don't see mitt romney in pennsylvania, that's sending you a signal of where they think they can and cannot win. it will be interesting to see if romney goes to ohio and how much time he spends there. if you don't see him harping on those states -- i can tell you that talking to obama campaign people, they're pretty confident about the math. >> thank you so much. >>> next, le
's exotic, grew up outside of the united states and yes, by the way, he is black. but this is -- this goes beyond that, because it really is -- i just think there's an edge to this one that we haven't seen. >> dana, you were just saying, that given all the attacks during the convention, the republican convention next week, it's not been of any great benefit to mitt romney. today we learn that the romney and ryan campaign are running robo calls and guess what's in the robo call, the president wants to raid medicare for $716 million and he's going to tax wheelchairs and pacemakers. i mean, if it failed during their convention, why do they keep doing this? >> and i expect next they'll come back again with that jamesville gm plant which has been discredited and that whole line about the simpson-bowles that paul ryan trotted out last week. so, you know, that doesn't seem to be working. you know, when you take something like the jamesville case that's flat wrong, that's one thing. gene does make an important case that welfare argument is more pernicious because it seems designed to divide people
in issued this statement -- "it's shocking that a candidate for president of the united states would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half of the american people view themselves as victims entitled to handouts and are unwilling to take personal responsibility for their lives. it's hard to serve as president for all americans when you've disdainfully written off half the nation." in a late-night news conference, romney responded. >> well, you know, it's not elegantly stated, let me put it that way. i'm speaking off the cuff in response to a question, and i'm sure i could state it more clearly and in a more effective way, but it's a message which i'm going to carry and continue to carry, which is, look, the president's approach is attractive to people who are not paying taxes because, frankly, my discussion about lowering taxes isn't as attractive to them. and therefore, i'm not likely to draw them into my campaign as effectively as those who are in the middle. >> let me britain in anne kornblut for "the washington post" and a politics reporter for roll
're running to be president of the united states. that's how it goes. and a lot of what you're seeing with the romney campaign right now is when you have sort of cascading failure. you're getting people, you know, tommy thompson said yesterday, why am i going down in polls? what do you think? i'm running with mitt romney. that doesn't help. you start having morale problems, and, you know it can all go pretty bad. the point, tim was making about, about romney's strategy, coming in late. that's a pretty perilous strategy. what obama has done is similar to what the clinton campaign did in '96. they spent tons of money early to define bob dole. by the time bob dole got around and campaigned, everybody kind of had a sense he was, you know, newt gingrich's mini me, basically and it was over for him. >> and then to the question of money, tim, you know, if you look like you're in a really tough spot and things could change with the first debate, a lot of people think that could be sort of a turning point in this race, but do your supporters run to you and say, okay. we need to get him out of
in the pledge e, the most poignant moment. >> i pledge allegiance to the e united states of america. >> the president, vice president, and their wives will to ottawa today and florida weekend, or the future of is at the top of the of voter concerns. abc news, new hampshire. keep it on abc 7 to stay informed on the issues in this election. go one-on-per will one with ann romney tonight on abc news starting at 5:00. you don't want to miss that. hearing underway the former falls church convicted ofairman child sex abuse. copartner found guilty in may of molesting katia bill girl during sleepover with his daughter. victims were nine and 10 years old. molesting two girls. he was chairman of the falls church city democratic committee 2006-2007. a fourth bill teenager sentenced to 60 years in prison for murdering his 92-year-old neighbor. the 16-year-old plant guilty to murdering thelma steele and her heights afterct they got into an argument. then he went back to a home and cash and credit cards. the state's attorney helped a press conference about the sentencing. was a horrific death. to
court may very well hang in the balance. >> listen, i'm the second most bipartisan in the united states senate, was recently named by washington onmagazine as the least partisan senator. >> senator brown voted in the only chance had he against a pro-choice woman. it's not just about senator brown's vote, this is about the votes of all of the republicans. jim inhoff, the senator, would become the person who would have supervision over the environmental protection agency. >> you're not running against jim inhoff. you're running against me, professor. >> more jim inhoff references in that debate than even references. >>> moving on to virginia, another race where four polls in the last two weeks have the race razor tight. fiscal issues dominated a debate moderated by nbc's david gregory who pressed both candidates to respond to romney's remarks d disparaging 47% of households that pay no federal income tax. >> you think nearly half the country see themselves as victims because they're too dependent -- >> no. i see people -- i've looked very positively of the people of virginia -- >> you wou
? >> well, that helps mitt romney to be on the same stage with the president of the united states. there's no doubt. it always helps the challenger with the incumbent. the problem, though, is i think what susan pointed out and dana pointed out is that we really don't know who mitt romney is. so the question is which mitt romney will appear on the debate stage? and that will determine whether people will believe whatever candidate shows up at that time. >> all right. dana, real fast, though, president obama has a lot on his agenda. starting tomorrow, he's going to be here in new york city. and what's on the schedule is this high-stakes speech before the u.n. nbc's first read is calling it the president's do-no-harm week. and the reason they're saying that is because he doesn't really have on one-on-ones with any other world leaders. he's got to sit down with the ladies of "the view." sure, i mean, and they're going to hit him with some hard questions. but, you know, it's not going to be the same thing as meeting with world leaders. the romney campaign is going after the president on this
. >> it is interesting. houston brought us the moon. in the future we're going to bring the united states and the world mars. humans on mars. it is an amazing thing. melissa: how far away is that? >> we're out there in the 200 time frame. melissa: really? >> we're moving forward taking stepping stones approach we did in the 1960s. that decade we used step by step moving towards the moon. we'll do the same thing moving towards mars. melissa: to some extent it seems like americans have lost their fascination with space. you know, it is not right at the forefront of everyone's minds any longer. how do you bring that spirit back? it is alive and well in houston but i don't think the rest of the count try. >> it was great to see the excitement around the shuttle. melissa: that's true. >> inspiration is with young people. more applicants, second largest group of applicants for the next astronaut class than there's ever been. melissa: yeah. >> so i think students are still inspired by space. the outpouring around the passing away of neil armstrong and sally ride, we mourned that but just demonstrates i think
single experience with the voter. barack obama, president of the united states, is a millionaire, as he likes to remind us. yet, he still speaks to and for people that are hurting. so to the extent that ann romney was successful in talking to women about how they feel, which i thought she did well in doing, i think the coverage that she got from us was well deserved. >> and you have to keep in mind, this is somebody that the majority of the american people aren't necessarily tuned in to this election yet. certainly many aren't paying attention to the candidates -- and they're up against the most popular first lady in a very long time. >> let's talk about that as you as a woman and did other women you talked to whether they like the romney ticket or not feel a resonance with ann's snej>> the best line she gave is that it's not a storybook marriage, what i have a real marriage. i think that connected with me as a woman. she talked about some of the fights they have. what was also effective was that biographical video that they played thursday night, before clint eastwood came out. it was
the substance of the bill has always been very positive for the united states, whether you're interested in insuring the 50 million people who don't have coverage, whether you're interested in improving the quality for everyone and reducing things like hospital infections or readmissions, and whether you're interested in cost control and restraining the excess growth that we've had in health care. it's all been in the bill. the communication strategy is i think now revving up and i hope that it really takes. >> dr. emanuel, i have to ask a follow-up to that. we were looking at sort of the provisions that are taking place now and those that are going to kick in in 2014. in 2014, there are some big ones coming down the pike, the exchanges, insurance exchanges are established, the individual mandate takes effect, medicaid expands, there are insurance tax credits and probably the biggest one, the prohibition on denials due to pre-existing conditions takes effect. those are all really big selling points as far as the affordable care act goes. my question is why was the timing such that they o
wrong with that. there's a big difference between being investor in chief and president of the united states. this business of getting tough on china, we hear it all over the campaign trail, everybody does it it really comes down to what's in the details. and that i think is where mitt romney has been once again, insufficient. he says he would label china a currency manipulator but at the same time he's against legislation, bipartisan legislation, that would actually go hard against the fact china manages currency to are an advantage with its exports and put our imports at a competitive disadvantage. >> mr. romney scolded the president back in 2009 for defending american tire companies against chinese competition and i'm quoting him, production stifles productivity but he now has the president hasn't been hard enough on china. today the president responded. take a listen. >> when you hear this newfound outrage, you hear these ads promising to get tough on china, it feels a lot like that fox saying, you know we need more secure chicken coops. >> robert i don't w
